Arizona Transportation Partnering Excellence Award

For more than 20 years, the Arizona Department of Transportation has engaged in a formal partnering program with its contractors. The program facilitates productive relationships, establishes a process for amicable resolution of conflicts and has ledAZ Transportation Partnering Excellence Award to more projects being completed on time and on budget.
